Question about Rheem Water Heaters
1) Copy following links for wiring upper thermostat:
2) Thermostat must sit flat against tank wall to read correct temperature, and entire opening must be covered with insulation so cool room temperature will not interfere with temperature reading.
Be sure to put cover back on side of tank for electrical safety, and to prevent any possible fire caused by melted parts and overheating.
3) Tighten wires very tight under screw plate, and make sure only copper wire is used, and all wires under plate are same gauge, do not mix stranded wire and solid wire or stranded will become loose.
Only copper under the screw plate and cut back insulation so no insulation gets under screw plate.
4) Add comment and say what you are doing
